Tobey Maguire (Born Tobias Vincent Maguire) was born in Santa Monica, California, on the 27th of June 1975.
His parents, Wendy Brown and Vincent Maguire are of Scottish-American descent and were 18 and 20, respectively, at the time of his birth.
They were unmarried when he was born, but later married and separated when he was two years old. This caused him to move a lot, living with relatives.
His mum, at that time, was into acting, advertising, and publicity in Hollywood, and she spent time coaching Toby. Vincent Maguire, Tobey’s dad, was a cook who doubled as a construction worker.
Tobey has four half-brothers, two each from both parents, namely Vincent Jnr and Timothy from his father’s side and Jopaul Van Epp and Weston Epp from his mother’s side.
Jopaul and Weston were the child actors in Spiderman 2 who handed Peter Parker his mask after the train scene. Tobey is a vegetarian and has been one since 1992.
In sixth grade, Toby wanted to become a chef and consider enrolling in a home economics class.
His mother, who was into acting herself, thought differently and offered him $100 to take drama classes, which he accepted.
Tobey Maguire was just showing up in school but not giving in to it. The constant relocations he made during his school years also had a toll on him.
He dropped out of college in the first year after he had to move again and focused on pursuing his acting career. However, he obtained his General Educational Development (GED) in 2000.
While shooting “Seabiscuit” in 2003, Maguire met Jennifer Meyer, a jewelry designer. They got engaged in April 2006 and had their first child, a daughter named Ruby Sweetheart Maguire, in November of the same year.
Maguire married Meyer on September 3, 2007, in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, and they had a son Otis Tobias Maguire in May 2009.
Their marriage of 9 years was cut short after they announced their separation on October 18, 2016. Meyer filed for divorce in 2020.
Tobey Maguire lives in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The $16.5 million house is 9,490 sqft of space and comprises six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
The two-story modern home gives a great view of the local canyon and has a hot tub and an infinity pool outside. Other features of the house include a wine cellar, theatre, and also a gym.
He is known to be friends with Leonardo DiCaprio as they first met in 1990 during casting for a TV spin-off series, “parenthood.” DiCaprio landed the lead role in the series, while Tobey had a few lines.
The pair have worked on projects such as This Boy’s Life and The Great Gatsby. They have also been spotted partying together, like in the summer of 2017 on a yacht party in the south of France.
Tobias began his career at age 14. At this time, he only had minor roles in series such as “Blossom” and “Roseanne.” His first major appearance was in “The Wizard” in 1989.
Some notable movies where he has had lead roles include
- Wonder Boys
- The Cider House Rules
He has been featured in movies such as
- Fear and Loathing
- Ride with the Devil
His voice has been lent to some animations such as Cat and Dogs, and Boss Baby.
Maguire starred in the Spider-man trilogy from 2002 to 2007, which made him a huge star. He also lent his voice to spider man video game adaptations.
